Default RUSH: Time Machine

Show Time!

Hard to describe without getting into all of the cliches.
Just back from Euro leg of the tour they started off a little cold (half a song to warm up) but after that....not a complaint except for one: the incredible low tones generated on Geddy's synth were painful during Subdivisions and a couple other songs.
More than likey it was my seating...lower deck 2/3's back where the bass can bounce off the back wall on occasions.
But what a synth it is!

(I drove up from Columbia with my 17 YO son, his first major concert).

The show itself...the set, the films, the details.
Just incredible production and execution.
I see why the ticket prices seem so high - it must cost a mint to get all that
together.
Was it me or could I actually FEEL the heat from the Witch Hunt flames?

Execution-although they have all of the tools at their disposal when they bumped the Time Machine
back to 2112 the gadgetry was dispensed of seamlessly and it was just like looking at the band on stage from 1977.
The sparse white lights spotlight the band and the stage "choreography" looked the same with Geddy and Alex performing their own moves like they did then.
Hard to pick a favorite but from my username you can probably guess I just loved that segment.

BU2B was great...Watchhmaker also incredible.
They are stronger than ever...

Intro and intermission movies were a riot also!
("Moving pitchers"...LOL)
What is the best about "Rash" is they are having fun and it shows.
I hope I can go like that when I'm 58 years old.

I'm kicking myself greatly for not getting tickets to see them this week. Gas prices can eat my dick.

They're still doing the Time Machine tour???
I caught the concert last August. We had shitty seats way off to the side, but the sound was incredible and we were close to the beer garden .
Yes, you felt the flame heat. Surprised Alex hasn't burned to a crisp by now.
My only gripe is why the vocals have to deteriorate while the musicianship only gets better with age. Not gonna bitch too much though.... my all time favorite band still brings it.

Maybe it was the time off, but Geddy sounded fine for most.
The only notable parts missed were the stuff he never sang well in the first place, 2112!
I sang it for him.
My son said I was spitting.
At least it wasn't in his direction...
